Quiz! Can you name every team-mate Andy Carroll played with at Liverpool?
"When I was in the helicopter down to Liverpool, I was like, ‘I know Stevie G, I know Carragher. Who else?’ My agent at the time had to tell me, and I would get it on Google and find out the team.
“It’s bad because it’s Liverpool players, but it’s not disrespectful – I just literally didn’t watch football, so I didn’t know."
Andy Carroll admitted this week that he had no idea who played for Liverpool when he joined them in 2011. “I was just completely oblivious to all the football that was going on,” said the professional footballer.
It’s fair to say, then, that he would do very, very badly on this quiz. We’ve put together the 32 players who Carroll obliviously shared a pitch with during his two-year spell at Anfield, ranging from the Liverpool greats even he’s heard of to the… well, to the ones even we’d struggle to place on an identity parade.
We’re giving you seven minutes – or Andy, if you’re reading, get in touch and we’ll double it. Once you’re done, send us your score to @FourFourTwo and challenge an oblivious professional footballer to see if they can do any better. Cheers!
